I must go down to the sea again.....

I must get on ....I must get on !      I have to admit, I put this graphic of Donnas on to the screen and then sat back and looked and looked at it ! it is suggesting all sorts of scenarios to me,Is the young lady waiting for someone ?has she got a secret and can only share it with the ocean ,The list is endless ,maybe you have your own ideas ,The colour and the texture of the dress remind me of one I wore many years ago,though that had a long straight skirt ,We went to a fancy dress dance ,and I went as 'Britiania' ah memories ! you see Donna your graphics do it to me every time !

O'er its started !..... I have just been to visit Laura,In Scotland a young Mum of five ,whose aim is to get fit on her bike ,I dont have to give you her link,she is on the AOL welcome page and I enjoyed her journal and have put her on my alerts and favourites,though have to say Laura ,you aint gonna get any freebies from Halfords ,lol even though I do agree with what you are saying ! 

 Well folks its Saturday again,and nearly time to take my trusty trolley for its weekly trundle up to the market and shops ,so I hope the weather manages to stay fine until I get back, drought or no drought, I have had enough of this cold wet weather now and want some sunshine as I know you all do ,Have a good weekend folks With Love From .....

With grateful Thanks to Donna for my intro graphic,and to Chris for my sig,where would we be without these talented Ladies to brighten up our entrys ?....

Hi, what a beautiful graphic, best ever!! suggests a tormented young woman who has been let down by a cad, she runs to the rough sea and contemplates diving in, but the 'cad' is chasing her and sweeps her up in his arms.lol

Yes I remember you as Britiania in the fancy dress,that was a good one.Donnas graphic is a lovely picture.I'm late getting on here as Dan and Maisie stayed over night  then later this afternoon we are off to Jos to babysit her two while they go to a wedding.
Hope you managed to get to the shops and back before it rained on you.Have a good weekend........Love Jeanxx

Have a nice shopping trip Jan. Personally, I can't stand markets. Too much hustle and bustle and hardly a bargain to be found these days. Or maybe that's just Romford market?
Hope the weather behaves for you.  B. x

I hope that young lady doesn't jump into the sea.  To me it looks like she's waiting for a large cruise ship to pull up, so she can get on it and dance the night away.  It's finally cooled down here in Washington, and it rained a little yesterday afternoon.  I put all the hanging baskets out from under the porch roof so they could get a sprinkle or two.  Have a lovely Sat evening, Jan.            Linda

I love the graphic. To me it suggests she is at a very exciting time in her life. She looks exhilarated. She's been having the time of her life at The Ball and has just met the man of her dreams. She runs down the garden path to be alone with her thoughts for a few moments, trying to take in the new turn her life in her destiny.

She flings her arms wide in a gesture of defiance to the raging elements, as if to say, 'Go on throw what you like at me, I can overcome it all now, with him at my side, I am invincible!'

Ooops! Sorry, went off on one there. lol.

I love the sea and often just go and stand and stare at it...Especially if it's a rough day...I find it very calming and tranquil even if the waves are several feet high and crashing on to the shore...Really excited to hear about your mystery trip   Caff xxx

I love that graphic with the girl in the blue dress by the ocean.  It reminded me of the Little Mermaid movie for some reason. If she had red hair she would have been Ariel.

Hear Hear Jan,  I`m getting bored with this horrible cold weather, I want Summer and I want it NOW!  The graphic made me think of `The French Lieutenant`s Woman` with Meryl Streep looking out across the sea, her dress wasn`t as pretty as your graphic though.  I hope you managed to get your shopping without getting soaked or blown away! :o)

Hi Jan,
Thanks for dropping into Northern Trip. I was bowled over by the amount of response from having my journal linked from Sugar lol. And been busy this evening.

I'm getting to really detest the supermarket trips, in fact home delivery is getting easier lol. I didn't realise Lauras blog was on the front page too.

Love the graphic!  I hope she isn't thinking of jumping!  That ocean looks pretty rough to me! lol  Nahh... the dress is too nice!  Surely she would remove that first!
I hope you know that I am just kidding.. :)   Being silly!

Hugs,
Jackie

I reckon that lady in the graphic is thinking she can fly with the wind rustling her dress!!  I've not seen Laura's journal (or at least I don't think so) but will look out for it :-)  Hope you had a good weekend xx

I do love that graphic that Donna made.  I know she wasn't thrilled with the way it turned out but I find it fascinating.  The rain has finally stopped here.  We actually had sun today but still very windy and chilly.  HUGS  Chris
